Our Facebook friend Rebecca Abbott graciously sent us these photos taken in Yellowstone National Park. They clearly show the ewes shedding off their heavy winter coats and the shorter summer coats coming in underneath. Thank you, Rebecca!
Our friends Barb and Mike Neal, of Arizona, were lucky enough to find this albino Rocky Mountain Bighorn ram in the Wind River Canyon of Wyoming during the summer of 2012. We really appreciate their sharing these photos with us. We have had reports of this ram being seen for at least three years now.
Many thanks to Mark Gocke of the Wyoming Game & Fish Department for sharing his photos of the sheep trapping project of Jan. 12 and 13, 2012. More photos may be seen at Special Report.
Many hands are needed to restrain the sheep
Testing completed, a ram is released

The above photos by Suzan Moulton were taken during one of our guided wildlife viewing tours to Whiskey Basin in December, 2010. The rams were enjoying each others company not far from the road, and sheep are not the only wildlife seen during these tours!
